Keepsake Birth Weight Teddy Bear
Save your favorite baby clothes or hospital blanket by having them made into a custom keepsake memory bear, made to your baby's actual birth weight and length! Our weighted teddy bears make wonderful first birthday keepsakes, Mother's Day gifts, NICU keepsakes or bereavement gifts.
You have four options for your weighted baby memory bear:
- Extra-small: up to 3 lbs or 1360gm (minimum 10"/26cm length)
- Small: 3lbs-4lbs15oz or 1361-2239gm
- Medium: 5lbs-7lbs or 2240-3175gm
- Large: 7lbs1oz-9lbs15oz or 3176-4530gm
*If your baby was smaller than 10" long or 10lbs+, please see our other weighted bear listings.
Extra-small: minimum 3 newborn sized footed sleepers
Small: minimum 4 footed sleepers and/or a blanket
Medium: minimum 5 sleepers and/or a blanket
Large: minimum 6 footed sleepers, or one blanket and 3 footed sleepers
**Please send AT LEAST the minimum amount of fabric required for each keepsake. If a small amount of supplemental fabric is required we can only offer plain white flannel.
We'll use the pattern on your fabric thoughtfully, add a handmade felt nose and safety eyes, and make your bear to your specified weight and length within a 5% margin.
Our teddy bears are not the same proportions as a human baby.
All of our keepsake bears are stuffed with hypo-allergenic polyester fill, made here in Canada. Weight is added with high quality poly pellets, glass beads, and/or steel pellets, securely encased in reinforced fabric bean bags.
